Meet Me in the Middle?
We have been talking about Hope this month, it’s my OneWord for the year. It’s good to kindle Hope whenever we can, so I thought this would be the perfect time to share my new project with you. I am so excited about MeetMeintheMiddle.com—squee!!!!
It all started here, last year, with the Big Before & After Project, during Lent. This year, the project grew up and got it’s own website. 🙂 You can learn everything at MeetMeintheMiddleProject.com —the plan is to repurpose Before & After images in order to share the gospel on social media ( read about it here, from the website):
Our hope is to curate (collect and organize) BEFORE and AFTER pictures, with the goal of celebrating the work happens between the pictures, and connect our observations with our understanding of the Christian life.
HOW CAN I BECOME A CURATOR?
To Curate: to collect, select and present information or items such as pictures, video, music, etc. for people to use or enjoy, using your professional or expert knowledge.
Each Wednesday, from Ash Wednesday through Holy Week, post one collage, of two images, a before and an after (see above) with the words Before & After in text on the collage, plus the hashtag #MeetMeintheMiddleProj. Write the story of what happened in the middle of the “before and after” images and show how that story is a Gospel Story. Share it on the web via a blog, Pinterest or Instagram. Then link up weekly here.
This project needs your help! The goal here is two-fold:
- Proclaim the Gospel. Writing Gospel Stories in the descriptions of your Meet Me in the Middle Project social media posts points to THE Gospel.
- Create Community. Curating (collecting and organizing) Before & After images together is a fun way to connect with other believers. 🙂 Sign up below to get an invitation to our closed FaceBook group and the official Pinterest Board, then use the hashtag #MeetMeintheMiddleProj and link up weekly at MeetMeintheMiddleProject.com Collaborating together in this way with grow help us to meet (in the middle) and encourage one another.
This week, I will be sharing some video tutorials here to help you get involved, so stay tuned! In the meantime, sign up here to learn more!
Do you have any ideas about Before & After images you have from…DIY projects, crafty sessions with the kids, or recipes from your kitchen? If you don’t have good ones, you can start taking some now! We start February 10!!
